"Eighty percent of AIDS patients are working-age adults between twenty and forty-nine years of age, yet more than seven years into the worst epidemic this country has ever faced, fewer than ten percent of American businesses have developed policies to deal with the presence of AIDS in the workplace. .... This book offers a comprehensive approach to managing AIDS in the workplace -- its impact on health benefits, insurance coverage, employee assistance, and public relations. Throughout Puckett and Emery stress two key points: define the needs of the organization in advance of an AIDS crisis on the job, and treat AIDS like any other life-threatening condition". -- front dust jacket blurb.
